Lovely Blog Award II


The Dewey Hop blog has been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award for the second time in 8 months! I am honored to accept this award and humbled by all the attention the blog is getting. To be nominated twice in 8 months is a great privilege. Dewey Hop would not be so successful without the wonderful online readers, so I thank each and every one of you for helping to make Dewey Hop a great online presence and for bringing positive attention to the Fulton County Public Library in Rochester, Indiana.

I would especially like to thank fellow blogger Cale who writes the blog for nominating Dewey Hop. Cale was being extremely kind and said, “I wanted to nominate you because you have one of the most interesting blogs, and are very engaged with your audience.”

The Rules for this award are as follows:

  1.  Thank the person who nominated you and leave a link to their blog
  2.  Post about the award. Share 7 facts about yourself
  3.  Nominate, AT MOST, 15 people
  4. 5. Tell your nominees the good news!

Random facts about me:

  1. Education: I have Bachelor of Science degrees in both Elementary Education with an Interrelated Special Education add-on and Psychology.  I was almost done completing a Master’s degree as a Reading Specialist when I was forced to drop out of school by a family emergency.
  2. I serve as a Special Power of Attorney to a missionary family in the Phillipines.
  3. There are 4 very spoiled critters that live at my house (not counting the Mr.): A Border Collie, 2 Jack Russels, and 1 calico cat with a checkerboard face.
  4. I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers; I’m the 7th and youngest.
  5. My favorite kind of food is Mexican.
  6. I love to cook and often cook for other people.
  7. The most requested of my talents is saying, “That’s despicable!” just like Daffy Duck.

I am aware some of you have been nominated by other people in the past, but all of your blogs are unique and interesting and worthy of multiple nominations! Plus, I’ve never nominated you and you all deserve the attention! Please do not feel obligated to participate if you do not want to.

Thanks again to my nominator, Cale, whose escapades I really enjoy reading at!

    1. My “powers” are actually Special in a legal sense. Most POAs have control over only finances or medical decisions. Some POAs have “power” over both finances & medical decisions. In my case, I have “power” over both finances, medical decisions, and basically everything else. This is basically for emergency purposes, but you definitely would not want to appoint a “Special Power of Attorney” over your affairs that you didn’t trust completely!

      1. It’s a huge responsibility, and to be honest, I am sometimes stressed by it. However most of the time it’s fine because as I said, it’s primarily for emergency purposes and also so I can (hopefully) assist his wife and child if something happened to him. I am currently trying to help them get back to the States so he can seek some medical treatment. His son is a dual citizen so he and his son can return anytime, but it’s been a nightmare trying to get permission for his wife to come back with them, legally.

      2. You got it! 😉 Homeland Security is a double edged sword. While I definitely appreciate them trying to keep us all safe, they are creating nightmares for some people who are trying to legally enter the country.
